I've Been Replaced

Lulu has a very large family. She has my large family, her dad's regular-size family, and my husband's regular-size family.

Each year she compiles a Christmas wish list and I give ideas out to the family members. I have been telling Lulu that she needs to start working on this list.

Imagine my surprise when I got this text message on my cell phone on Sunday morning. Here it is, in its entirety, typos and all...

From: Lulu

What have I done to be replaced? Have I mismanaged her "wishes" in the past? Hah! Well, I can mark that task off of my to-do list.

Bro's list is easy... he wants... anything that has to do with a mode of transportation... cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, and so on.

What is the must-have item on your Christmas wish list???

That's cute. I found a few things Emily might like at a local Okinawa store. I'm already singing "All I want for Christmas" "is my Husband to be home for good". Hopefully before the end of the year :(

I haven't even begun to think about the kids' Christmas gifts, let alone any one else's. Except for my mum, we talked about something I'd thought she might like last night - one of those LCD photo frames which cycle through lots of different photos.

My list is going to be very short this year, it looks like this:
